About me and my therapy practice

HI, my name is David Scott, and I am a qualified person-centred counsellor/psychotherapist. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association Counselling & Psychotherapy) and adhere to their code of ethics. I have been counselling for 5 years and have a background in working with charities involved with drug use services. I also work as high school counsellor with students aged from 12 to 18.

I am experienced in working with both adults and children covering trauma, addiction, bereavement, relationship issues, LGBT+, anxiety and depression.

I hold the following qualifications

  • Certified Cyber Therapist
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • CPCAB Level 4 Certificate in Counselling Children

Practice description

I work in a person-centred way that puts you at the heart of therapy. My aim is to be alongside you as you begin to explore in a non-judgemental and kind way what is happening for you. I believe that you are the expert of yourself and with support will find the answers or understanding you are looking for. I offer short term more focussed work or longer term depending on what you need.

I am also interested in exploring creative writing in therapy and if you are interested we can use writing exercises in the work.

My first session

I understand it can be daunting to talk to a stranger about how you feel and it can take time to build up trust in a relationship. At the first session we will explore what you would like from counselling and I will answer any questions about how we work together. This will allow you to decide if counselling is the right thing for you, and if you would like to work with me.  You might even be questioning why are thinking about counselling or help.

At the first session we will talk about what you want to get from counselling and how we can work together to achieve this.  

I offer the first session at a reduced fee of £25.
